In the last few years, Jerry's vocals on Stella got so emotive even as his voice got rougher and the guitar and keyboard sounds got more unpleasing to my ears. But this version from Phoenix in 1994 is killer to hear Jerry sing the hell out of!
I also really like 7-13-84 Greek for the vibe, even if the solo is short and the vocals are rough, it has a feel that to me is just right for the song and I'll take Brent's backing vocals anyday over anybody else's. https://archive.org/details/gd1984-07-13.sbd.walker-scotton.miller.96153.sbeok.flac16/gd84-07-13d1t01.flac
And if you haven't listened to it in awhile, check out the studio version, its damn fine and to my ears one of their better studio performances ever. I agree its a fantastic song, probably my fave Hunter Garcia ballad, too, with close competition from Comes A Time and High Time, for me.
